Our fees

Fee arrangements for immigration services

As a very individual law firm, Azarmi & Co has very individual clients with very individual needs; so no surprise then that our services are not “pre-packed” or “one size fits all”. Individuality, however, is not an excuse for avoiding clarity and transparency about how we charge for our services and how you, our client, can expect a quality service at competitive prices.

Every client is different and will want us to recognise the huge variations in pressures, priorities and preferences when it comes to working with them.

The first step in any fee arrangement is to ensure that we understand the case and all its relevant issues, complexities, timeframes and constraints.  Once we have this understanding of the technical requirements, it is also about understanding the clients and what fee arrangements will make him/her feel most in control, but at the same time, sufficiently looked after.  Everyone is different. We will define the costs and disbursements for your case at the outset of each matter in our client care letter.

Fixed & Capped fee quotations

Where it is feasible, and the terms of reference based on the “scope of work” is unlikely to change, we will offer fixed fees.  This is a fixed quote which will be charged on completion of the case providing the initial terms of reference have not changed.

We are also happy to discuss “capped” fees; this is where it is not so easy to confirm the terms of reference but is a means by which the client is assured that the fee won’t be more than a certain figure, the “capped” fee, but that in the event that it takes us less time to achieve the results required, the client will be charged at the lower fee, equating to time spent rather than the higher “capped” rate.

How our Fixed & Capped fees are calculated

The basis of all our quotes is the charge out rate per hour for each member of the team which is based on their individual expertise, experience and aptitude.  As you would expect our founding partner Sally Azarmi will command the highest hourly rate between £350 – £450; our Paralegals Jayne Wade & Mitchell Potter have the lowest at £150.  However, Jayne is the most experienced member of the support team in terms of managing the huge administrative process of visa applications and so the best woman for the job both in terms of value and skill levels.  We are committed to use the strengths of our team members to best effect and to end benefit of our clients and so as well as individual hourly rates for our lawyers, we may refer to “blended rates” to reflect a composite team hourly charge.

Scope of Work & Timelines

We provide an attentive and bespoke service throughout each application we deal with.  The work that we undertake for each application for which the fees are quoted will include the following:

  1. Meeting with you in person or virtually to take initial instructions and advising on the best way forward.
  2. Advising you in detail on the evidential and procedural requirements of your application.
  3. Reviewing your evidence in detail.
  4. Completing and submitting the application form.
  5. Drafting any supporting documentation needed for the application.
  6. Providing a legal covering letter making any factual and legal representations necessary for the application.
  7. Booking your Biometircs appointment.
  8. Where applicable creating the ‘Electronic bundle’ and creating a hard copy bundle.
  9. Informing you of the outcome of your application and advising on any ancillary questions.

The different stages of most applications are as set out as above. However each case is different and there may be other steps involved on which we would advise on at the outset of your case.  The Timeline for our taking your instructions to submission of your application will vary according to how quickly you are able to provide the necessary evidence and when you wish to enter the UK or expiry of current Visa.
